MOORESVILLE, N.C. – It’s no big secret that Nick Hoffman strives to accomplish things no one else has been able to do.
He’ll add another first-time achievement to his resume during the upcoming Castrol Gateway Dirt Nationals at The Dome at America’s Center. When the indoor event comes to life on Dec. 2-4, Hoffman will make history as the first driver to enter all three divisions.
He’ll pilot a midget entry for RAMS Racing, a super late model for Scott Bloomquist Racing and his own Elite Chassis modified.
“A handful of guys have tried entering two divisions at the Dome, but nobody has ever attempted three, but that’s exactly what I’m going to do in December… and I’m not content to just say I entered all three divisions, I want to win all three,” Hoffman said. “I’m going to be in topnotch equipment in the three classes. I’ve definitely got to thank Rick Young and Jeff Taylor from RAMS Racing and Rockwell Security for the midget ride. We had some pretty bad luck at Millbridge (Speedway) earlier this week, but we used that as a test session for the Dome, and we are using the Dome as a chance to fine tune everything for the Chili Bowl.
“Then in the super late model, I’ve got the support of Scott Bloomquist Racing, and those guys give me everything I need to win. Last but not least, we’ve had a heck of a year in our Elite Chassis modified, and I’m looking forward to what I can accomplish in it. It’s going to be a hectic weekend, but I’m ready for the challenge.”
The Castrol Gateway Dirt Nationals takes place Dec. 2-4 at The Dome at America’s Center. On Thursday and Friday night the midget, modified and super late model fields will be divided into qualifying night programs. The midget and modified prelims pay $3,000 to win, while the super late model prelims pay $5,000 to win.
On Saturday night the super late model finale pays $30,000 to win, while the midget and modified finales each pay $10,000 to win.
